The Hobart Hurricanes have secured the future of in-demand T20 allrounder Tim David after he put pen-to-paper on a new two-year contract extension.
Australia are priced at 10/3 to win the T20 World Cup this year but David has been representing the country of his birth, Singapore, on the world stage.
The 25-year-old is the man of the moment after Indian Premier League side the Mumbai Indians snapped him for $1.53million in the recent IPL auction.
That is more than was paid out for Aussie marquee players Pat Cummins and David Warner and it comes as no real surprise following some blistering performances in T20 cricket.
David impressed in BBL11 when he finish as the Hurricanes fourth-highest run-scorer and in one innings smashed an unbeaten 46 runs off 20 deliveries.
After penning the two-year deal David, who started with the Perth Scorchers, is now on board until at least the end of the BBL13 campaign and is delighted to have committed his future to Hobart.
"I’m really happy to be extending my time with the Hurricanes," David said after the deal was announced. "I’m thankful to the opportunity they gave me two years ago to be part of this team. The Hurricanes have been an important part of my growth as a player.
"I believe we have some great talent in this squad and I’m confident that if we play our best cricket we are capable of winning the BBL."
